Hi, I'm Saurav and yes, that picture has been taken by me. I'm a freelance photographer and cinematographer. Currently I'm studying in an engineering college and am in my last year of my college. I've been doing photography and cinematography since past 1.5 years. So far I've been pursuing photography and cinematography with borrowed gears. My college has clubs which provide us with equipment to learn. As an engineering graduate, I'm expected to find a job in engineering sector but I'm not interested in it. I never wanted to pursue engineering but due to parental pressure I chose engineering. But I can't continue it anymore. My family doesn't supports my passion for cinematography. Here, I'm linking to my photography portfolio and also attaching some photos taken by me in this description. You can find these photos on my portfolio too.
I have done some work in the past, collaborated with a clothing brand for shoot and also made aftermovie for few events. But now, I don't have the support from my college as I did once. I don't have a camera and also, I need a good laptop for creating and editing content. I also need some fund to travel.
With these pictures, I wanted to show that I'm a genuine guy and I really want to pursue this passion.
Here's the idea of the web series
As a developing country, India is facing a lot of problems but many of these are ignored which include the rapid climate change. With almost no steps being taken in order to slow down climate change, people must be aware of it and should take necessary steps by themselves. There are a lot of solutions to it but people aren't aware of it. I want to make a web-series about it, with number of episodes ranging 10-14, each spanning 10 mins in length. In the web-series, I'll try to show the steps taken in some parts of India for climate change and also focus on start-ups who are making environment friendly products. But for filming these, I'll need to travel across India and I also need a good camera gear and laptop for editing.
Why should you donate?
Every donation counts, and I'll be extremely thankful to you. If you donate to this project, not only you'll be helping me but also creating awareness about climate change. With the rapid change in climate, we all are facing danger of extinction and need to act now. Being from India, the second most populous country in the world, it's really important to create awareness and implement solutions to slow down the climate change.
Thank you very much!
